Skills Based Publisher Workshops

MS Publisher Course List

MS Publisher is a desktop publishing tool that forms part of the Microsoft Professional package and Office 365. For businesses which create a limited number of brochures, flyers, work instructions, posters etc. it is a great alternative to MS Word.


It allows greater flexibility when working with graphics, has lots of pre-designed layouts, excellent typography tools and it also comes with some useful photo effect tools.  If your business wants to create marketing materials but doesn't want to have the added expense of purchasing a professional desktop publishing tool, Publisher is a very good lightweight alternative.


In SMEs there isn't always a dedicated resource to producing marketing materials and in-house content but with Publisher any MS Office user can create high quality professional materials, with just a little assistance from us at Green Shoots Learning.
